About 150 people from across the country came to the National Technical Institute of the Deaf at RIT on Wednesday.

The last time the Convention of American Instructors of the Deaf was held in Rochester was in 1981.

Discussed were best practices from teachers and professionals working with deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

"It's really fun and interesting to see the participants talking and sharing with each other and they're taking back to their schools independently all kinds of neat new stuff," said Dr. Larry Quinsland, conference coordinator.

Quinsland say it will improve the education at NTID from the perspective that they are getting a better understanding of what's going on nationally before students gets here.

The keynote speaker was NTID science teacher Todd Pagano.
